Sources told the San Francisco Chronicle that Rich Aurilia and the Giants are about to finalize a two- or three-year contract worth about $3 million per season.
It looks like the Giants are going to remain old and not very good. Aurilia will likely be a regular for the club, though whether he'll play first, second or third will be determined by what happens over the rest of the winter.
The Giants are trying to sign free agent David Weathers to be their setup man.
He could close if Armando Benitez isn't ready to go on Opening Day. Weathers figures to command at least a two-year deal worth $3 million per year. The Phillies and Dodgers are also interested.
